EastEnders’ Adam Woodyatt gives clearest indication yet about his future on the soap | The Sun

EASTENDERS legend Adam Woodyatt has given fans a clear clue about his future on the soap.

The soap actor quit last year to star in Looking Good Dead – the first time he's been on stage since 1982.

Adam – who played hapless Ian Beale on the BBC soap for 36 years – left to appear on I'm A Celebrity.

Fans have been waiting with anticipation to find out whether he plans to return to EastEnders.

But in a blow to viewers, Adam is now set to star in a touring performance of My Fair Lady.

The BBC are keeping his role as Ian Beale open but he’s admitted that more opportunities away from Albert Square are on the table.

He revealed that with so many exciting deals turning up now his character's been chased out of the Square by Phil Mitchell, he could be tempted to quit for good.

"I'm never gonna say never," Adam said.

"But it's a question I get asked all the time. And it's a question I can't answer because I don't know the answer.

"It's not just my decision, it's their decision as well," the actor adds.

"They've got to write something. I've got to be available. Because I keep doing other work. The door's open, but there's a lot of doors that are open."

Adam first started out in this business, aged just 12 in London's West End.

"I love being on stage," he says. "I've kind of relearned in the last year or so why I fell in love with this job in the first place…

"There's something inside you, you get bitten by this bug, this theatre bug. And it doesn't leave you,”

But Woodyatt remains tight-lipped when it comes to who he enjoyed working with the most on the EastEnders set.

"That's like saying pick your favourite child," he says.

However he will admit that the late June Brown, aka Dot Cotton, was one of the actors he's learned the most from.

"I mean, the word legend gets thrown around far too easily. But she was without a doubt," he says.

"A legend and an icon.

"And for me, Steve McFadden [Phil Mitchell]. If I have got to narrow it down and pick someone, I'll pick Steve because he's a top bloke and a top actor."

Actor Ian now lives in a £100,000 motorhome as he continues his stage career following his divorce.
